The Great British Teacup Obsession

So like a lot of you, I have a bit of a thing for vintage teacups.  I was going to do a blog on lots of different pretty teacups from lots of different people, but found EstherCoombs on Etsy and looked no further. Turns out I've got a bit of a thing for EstherCoombs, too.

Just look at that mess!

I would love to tell you that the inner workings of Silk Purse, Sow's Ear are like a neat and shiny clockwork pin, but that would be an utter lie.  My house looks like some deranged elf lives here.  Just look at that mess!

Cauliflower Ears

Roses are the thing to have on your ears.  The first ones are my personal favourites.  Very little house on the prairie.

These clothes are so pretty they make me want to weep with joy.  She's got the balance of beauty and edginess just right, and I think I'm in love.

Clashy Clashy!

The cometh of spring is inspiring a bit of colour down at Silk Purse, Sow's Ear and it's all getting a bit clashy-clashy!  Especially loving the clashy possibilities of orangey pink with turquoise!
